One of the primary aims of this group has been to identify the needs and priorities of the cancer patients and families in the province, and then design research studies and public engagement activities to address these needs. In 2021, we efficiently identified the key priorities of patients and families in the province and are now moving on with specific topics (e.g. mental health needs).
We are excited to say that as the entire group, we also developed two projects together. One of these projects is now funded and aims to organize The Public Conference on Cancer in Fall 2022.
Some of us also advocate on behalf of the cancer patients and families in Newfoundland and Labrador
